How can I show certificates or badges to my users?

You can use the widget or shortcode to display badges or certificates that belong to the current WordPress user.

The shortcode is: [accredible_credential] but it accepts a number of options: [accredible_credential image=”true” limit=”10″ style=”true”].

Can you add support for another WordPress LMS or theme?

Sure, just post an issue and we’ll get to work:

This plug-in is a great idea, but sadly not developed well. The shortcode does not work, meaning the list of Certificates can’t be displayed to the WP user – it makes for a lot of admin on our end. There is a ton of potential here and I hope Accredible spends some time to fix the basics, keep it current, and move it from a side-project to something more permanent.

The plugin is working good, just it loses it’s point if you have many WP users and you have to choose each one of them manually and issue a certificate. I suggest adding support for memberships plugins like Paid Memberships Pro.
